Simon was born and raised in Dundee, Scotland. This is where he started his business and marketing career at age 20 as an Authorised Distributor for Utility Warehouse ( the only company in the UK that provides both Energy and telecommunications ) and studied at Dundee College. He has demonstrated how households and SME's could reduce their out goings while retaining the same, sometimes even better, level of service.
Simon also became a director of a charity at just the age of 19. He was elected as a Member of Scotland's Youth Parliament (SYP) where he served as Convenor for Justice and was a director on the SYP's board. Simon has, and continues to work for members of the Scottish Parliament (MSP's) in various capacities. He has over 9 years marketing and political campaign experience combined from across Scotland in various roles.
In addition, Simon graduated from Edinburgh's Napier University with a Marketing Management with Entrepreneurship degree. He is using this newly required degree to its fullest in his new business as a Subway Franchisee. Simon took over a Subway store in the Stockbridge area, Edinburgh in May 2013.
Simon recently stated: "The economic crisis is hurting organisations and businesses across the UK whether big or small but it is the small businesses that we should be most concerned about and I have a clear and simple approach when helping any business or organisation that are in need of assistance."
Simon has a proven track record in providing a first class service and also generating new and innovative ideas which are aimed at solving complicated problems. He is 100% committed to aiding those who are in great need and supporting local economies and communities.
